What is this Swell Rio Grande 150cm Aquarium?

The Swell Rio Grande 150cm Aquarium is large by name and large by nature, with a huge volume of 487 litres! It comes as part of a complete fish tank kit that also includes a built-in, multi-layered filtration system, an energy-efficient LED light, a heater, and more. It has a sleek and stylish design too, making it the perfect showpiece fish tank suitable for any living space.

A fish tank of this size needs a dedicated cabinet, and this kit comes with one of those included. It not only offers strong and stable support, but also a large amount of storage space for additional external filters, aquarium cleaning kits, fish food, and other fishkeeping essentials.

What's included in this aquarium kit?

The Swell Rio Grande 150cm Aquarium is packed with equipment to get you started on your fishkeeping journey. Included in this kit are the following items:

  • A 10mm-thick glass fish tank with bracing for added stability and support.
  • A sturdy cabinet with ergonomic door handles and a huge amount of storage space.
  • A built-in, high-volume filtration system packed with several layers of mechanical and biological media.
  • A 1000lph pump that powers your filtration system and keeps your water clear.
  • A 300w Aqua One heater, capable of maintaining tropical temperatures in aquariums of this size.
  • An energy-efficient, 100w LED strip light that slots into the lid and provides your aquarium with even light coverage.
  • A digital thermometer to help you keep a close eye on temperatures inside your aquarium.
  • A 29cm fish net for adding fish to your fish tank and performing all manner of maintenance tasks.
  • A 250ml bottle of dechlorinator and a 38g tub of fish flakes to get you started on your fishkeeping journey.

This Swell Rio Grande 150cm Aquarium and dedicated cabinet is available in black. This black finish is a single-tone matte finish that adds a real contemporary feel to the aquarium.

Is this aquarium easy to set up and maintain?

Yes, this Swell Rio Grande 150cm Aquarium is very easy to set up and maintain. Before you begin assembly, make sure that you've picked a flat and level area to place your aquarium - once you've added water its going to get very heavy and nigh on impossible to move!

After you've found a suitable spot, build your cabinet using the instructions provided and place your aquarium on top of it.

That done, you can then place your LED light into the hood and the heater into the built-in filter compartment in the back corner of your aquarium. Do not turn your filter and heater on until you have filled the aquarium with water, both pieces of equipment require a tank full of water to function properly. If you're planning to add sand, gravel, decorations and/or plants, its best to do this prior to adding water.

Once your fish tank is up and running, its time to let it cycle be sure to check out our aquarium set-up help guide to learn more about this essential process. After that, it's all about staying on top of maintenance. This is made easy thanks to the aquarium's removable lid that gives you quick and easy access to its interior for all kinds of tasks, from water changes to algae scraping.

What kind of fish can I keep in this aquarium?

This Swell Rio Grande 150cm Aquarium is a very large aquarium, so you have a lot of choices when it comes to choosing what kind of fish you'd like to keep. Anything from small community fish like Tetras, Platies and Guppies to large-sized tropical fish like Discus, Oscars, and Central American Cichlids are suitable for this shape and size of aquarium. It's suitable for several temperate/coldwater fish too, like Fancy Goldfish.

If you're planning on keeping really big fish in this aquarium, then you may want to increase your aquarium's filtration capacity by adding an external filter, like a Fluval FX or an AquaEl HyperMax 4500. These are two of the best external filters on the market and both can easily be stored away in this aquarium's spacious cabinet.

What else should I buy with this aquarium?

This Swell Rio Grande 150cm Aquarium is great as it comes with everything you'll need to get started. That said, if you want to make your underwater world look as beautiful as possible, then you'll want to pick up some substrate, hardscape, plants, and aquarium decor. You may also want to stock up on some extra fish food, dechlorinator and filter media for that time when your supplies from this complete aquarium kit eventually run out.
